HPMC MP6M is construction grade hydroxypropyl methyl cellulose for concrete admixture.
KimaCell® HPMC MP6M is low viscosity 6000cps cellulose ether. The higher the viscosity, the more obvious the thickening effect on the mortar, but it is not completely proportional. The low viscosity HPMC, especially the modified cellulose ether has better performance in improving the structural strength of wet mortar. With the increase of viscosity, the water retention of cellulose ether improves.

The application of KimaCell® HPMC MP6M have the following Advantages on Extruded Concrete Slabs:
Water retention of cellulose ether
In the production of building materials, especially dry-mixed mortar, cellulose ether plays an irreplaceable role, especially in the production of special mortar (modified mortar), it is an indispensable and important component. The important role of water-soluble cellulose ether in mortar mainly has three aspects, one is excellent water retention capacity, the other is the influence on the consistency and thixotropy of mortar, and the third is the interaction with cement.
Thickening and Thixotropy of Cellulose Ether
The function of cellulose ether-thickening, depends on: the degree of polymerization of cellulose ether, solution concentration, shear rate, temperature and other conditions.
Consistency can also be adjusted by selecting particle size and selecting cellulose ethers with different degrees of modification.
